The Story of Hugo by Darren Clegg
When a large shipment of vinyl toys arrived from the far east at the Collect and Display office we found one of the boxes moving! Not sure if we should open it or hit it repeatedly with a one of our Joe Ledbetter chaos bunnies, we decided to opened it Peering inside we saw a thing, a furry thing, a furry thing with big teeth and claws, a furry thing with big teeth and claws and a faint smell raspberry bubblegum... obviously we named him HUGO.
Now our official mascot, HUGO helps out around the office with all the fiddly little jobs. He's great at finding the toy in the cereal before we have finished, picking the lint out of our mobile phone ports and (although we have never asked him) burping into each and every package we send out, so apologies if upon opening your package you get that strange whiff of raspberry bubblegum, blame HUGO!
Kyle Kirwan – Yohlo Mesh Release
Yohlo Mesh is the fourth release of the Mudcat series by Kyle Kirwan. Yohlo stands 2.25” tall and is made from a 4 piece resin mold with articulation in the neck. The purple is the standard colorway and is limited to a total of 50 pieces. There will also be a surprise gray colorway available during the time of release on Tuesday, April 8th in his webstore HERE.
Although Yohlo grew up in Canarthe, he is a Nebin from the Isle of Bentree in the Broken Ocean, and spent the majority of his life sailing the seas of Dor. When his best friend Conrad Bellows got into trouble, Yohlo felt duty bound to take to the skies and help however he could as first-mate on the airship Kellen.
